Famous quotes containing the word stands:

    When I am finishing a picture I hold some God-made object up to it—a rock, a flower, the branch of a tree or my hand—as a kind of final test. If the painting stands up beside a thing man cannot make, the painting is authentic. If there’s a clash between the two, it is bad art.
    Marc Chagall (1889–1985)

    Supermarkets depict abundance; boutiques exclusiveness; roadside stands authenticity.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    We’ve looked and looked, but after all where are we?
    Do we know any better where we are,
    And how it stands between the night tonight
    And a man with a smoky lantern chimney?
    How different from the way it ever stood?
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
